One More Week!

So are you getting excited about Tuesday, September 8?  I bet many of the adults are just as excited as the kids!

Be sure to join the Parkwood Upjohn family for the Back to School BBQ on Tuesday, September 1 starting at 5:00 until 7:00 p.m.  Hotdogs, watermelon, and other snacks will be available.  Come and find out who your child has this year, meet the teachers, learn about the PTO and other activities offered at the school, and meet with other families as we gear up for back to school.  This is a RAIN OR SHINE event.  If it rains, we’ll be visiting in the gym.
